I had to blink to see if I TOTALLY understood this correctly, but I think this guy is TOTALLY decepting EVERYTHING the Prelinger Archive stands for.. He's even using the original Prelinger review!!

Comments? Rick? Have you seen this?

I havent even seen anything else on the site yet.. I wouldnt be surprised if I see more...

Oh wow.. About Fallout.. America Goes Over,, Wow, 14.99 each!!

Actually, things4all might be showing the internet archive a good fundraising idea!

Why doesn't IA offer this suff in easy to use formats for sale? Here's why:

I'm new to this site, but tricks like things4all pull are OLD HAT - he or she is just like the folks who *sell* free gov't reports, advertise scholarship info that is is just a rehash of Sallie-Mae, etc. things4all has a massive ebay page, as well, where the anti-porn and the Portland evac films from Prelinger are sold at $14.99

The problem is, that's what public domain means - anyone can do anything they like with it.

The funny thing is, if things4all prices weren't so high it would actually be a nice value-added service. I have a friend who sold public domain christmas music for $5.00 per CD, and everybody loved him for it. Think about it - we here are all computer savvy internet freaks, but finding, viewing and/or downloading this stuff is impossible for a lot of people to figure out - being able to buy it (for a reasonable price, not $14.99) is a great way to make this stuff more widely available, and might generate some much needed cash...

They also have collections of "personality" images that I would assume the rights of which are owned by individuals or companies such as MDI Entertainment, Inc.,
(Marilyn Monroe and James Dean for instance).
